Sorry, I don't remember seeing your mail.  Glad you followed up again.

For anyone with code improvements, this is the list on which to post 
them.  Your specific addition (of a new filter) is probably better done 
with XPath rather than filters as you allude.  We designed the filter 
model so people could write their own filters.  We probably won't gather 
a "Top 10 Filters" for the core.  It'd shortly become "Top 100" no 
doubt.  We might put such filters in jdom-contrib which is a module full 
of useful code not appropriate for the core of JDOM.
